I'm looking to sell or trade my basically brand new 2014 VOS R8 in Sunrise Tea burst (looks a lot like dirty lemon though) with some nice, subtle flame. This guitar was bought from HOG and it's a great one at 9.3 lbs. The Custombuckers sound phenomenal. The fretboard looks a bit light in this pic but I applied some mineral oil and it's darkened up nicely. I will post more pics tonight when I get home and take some more.

This guitar is exactly as I received it from HOG. It has all accessories, including the Lifton case, CoA, hang tags, etc. and even the original shipping box. It still smells new and has never left the house. The only reason I'm considering selling is that I think I prefer the 59 profile as I have pretty small hands. This one isn't huge by any means (like my 2011 was) but I find the 59 to be more comfortable for extended periods of time playing. I'm looking to get $3K + shipping/PP or local Chicago-area cash deal. I would also be interested in a trade + cash for a 2013/14 R9 in Lemonburst or Sunrise Tea/Iced tea.

This has a 'shattered glass' figure to it that is just amazing. The R8's that are available lately are just unreal. Bang for the buck cannot be beat. Best of luck. I'd take it...but I have my eyes on something special right now otherwise I'd be in!

Thanks guys, this guitar is awesome for sure. If the neck was a slight bit thinner, I'd never even consider selling.

I'm looking forward to this one. Thanks for making it easy. Funds are there. Just waiting on paypal's stupid Echeck system :). Seriously I appreciate it.
